Me and my friend stayed at this guesthouse for 6 days, overall we were satisfied. Bus stop is in front of the house! We didn't use services such as kitchen, because we ate outside. Cleaning was not enough, because we were there for almost one week and nobody came to clean the room and the sheets were never changed. Anyway...

Just got back from a 2 week stay in Xemxija, Malta. We stayed at the Porto Del Sol in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor. We had been somewhat worried about noise levels after reading some other reviews about this place- but we had absolutely no trouble at all with noise levels. The apartment is basic, but very...

We stayed in a one bedroom studio apartment on the 1st Floor. The view from our apartment was stunning overlooking Xemxija bay. The room was basic, containing a small kitchenette and a wet room shower. Shower curtain had mouldy stains and it needed replacing. The apartment itself is dated and is in need of modernising. However, the price was unbeatable....

We stayed here August 2016. We booked with Lowcostholidays who subsequently went bust, LCH had the audacity to call this guest house and cancel our booking without telling us.

This hotel is located on the Xemxija Bay. Literally on the bay. You get the most amazing views onto the picturesque water with Luzzu boats scattered accross sparkles of sunshine. There is something special about seeing the sunset with a glass of wine, whilst sitting in the balcony with a significant other. So. If you want amazing views you need...

We stayed here for 5 days in May. The apartment is what it is, basic, clean but noisy from the busy road that runs past the apartments. The traffic noise goes on all day and well into the night and can make sitting on the balcony for the really lovely views a bit of a challenge. That said, for the...
